Faith No More, Slipknot Lead Soundwave 2015 Lineup

Soundwave2015

After months of non-stop speculation, the Soundwave 2015 lineup has finally arrived. Revived US rock groups Faith No More and Soundgarden headlining Australia’s premier annual metal, rock and punk festival alongside Slipknot  when it hits Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in February.

The lineup comes amid a wave of excitement as 2015 will see promoter AJ Maddah and his team usher in the event’s new two-day format. Earlier this year, the outspoken Maddah described the bill as a “seven or eight” to 2013’s perfect 10 – a universally praised lineup that featured the likes of Metallica and Linkin Park.

Melbourne bands Ne Obliviscaris and Confession were the first to be confirmed as part of the festival before Soundwave teamed up with Music Feeds earlier this month to release ‘The First Wave’, a week-long announcement of up-and-coming acts, including Coldrain, Butcher Babies, Patent Pending, Monuments, and The Interrupters.

Soundgarden are no strangers to the summer Australian festival scene after recently touring with the 2012 Big Day Out with Kanye West and Kasabian, while Faith No More were part of the 2010 Soundwave Festival and Slipknot last visited Australia in 2012.
